Author Name    Bicknell, Les

Title   A Fragile Walk.

Binding   Hardcover

Edition   First Edition

Publisher   London Camberwell 1990?

Seller ID   543

Number 2 of only 5 copies printed. A tribute to rampant imagination and a belief in the beauty of textures, both natural and man-made. The entire book is printed on coarse, thick handmade papers in several colors. Illustrations are bold, colorful, childishly simple, childishly devious. Carvings in wood, lead, copper and fibre attach themselves throughout in a multi-media romp. The binding consists of a course linen spine with leather strapping joining two large slabs of stained pine on which nail heads, industrial staples and sculpting in various metals recall in a parody the bindings in precious metals and stones of medieval manuscripts. Les Bicknell has worked at Camberwell, "the only college in the UK providing specialist postgraduate study in Book Arts." His work is included in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Rijksmuseum, and MOMA. Indeed, one copy of this title is in the Victoria and Albert Museum. A fine copy.; Quarto
